    Welcome!    This thread is all about the SiJCP experience!  These stores are different than the stand-alone Sephora stores and like everything else, there are pros & cons.   Some of the pros: SiJCP has exclusive Sephora Favorites Sets ( which aren’t sold online ): Post a pic of any you may find out there in the wild GWP promos: sent out via email, snail mail or postcard offers in the store. There is usually no minimum purchase requirement but you will need the barcode.  Be a pal? Post any offers you come across here  Their own “Rewards”: the 100-pt’ers are usually different then stand-alone stores Some of the cons ( IMO ): Their own “Rewards”: which are hardly ever stocked The great mystery of the “ SiJCP Email Distribution List ” is still….you guessed it – a mystery! No one, not even store employees, know how to get on this email distribution list.  The investigation is still ongoing  Communication isn’t consistent  and each store seems to operate differently. BTW, if you had a good experience at the store, please complete the survey – this means a lot to the hard working SA’s.   Thanks everyone for your help  
Hi! I haven't seen a current thread about CP and was wondering if there were any fans here! I know its not High End, but the quality is great and I love my growing collection and would love to see anyone elses

I thought since a few BTer's like mermaids, unicorns, cute stuff, iridescent/holographic items... I'd start a thread so we could post all the products (beauty or not) that could fit this category.... even more enabling! hahahaha   Share products you find that you think others might like....        
The other thread was getting too long and difficult to load!    So what are your beauty pet peeves? What grinds your gears? Share your stories!!!
A place to say thanks to helpful BTer's, share your new BT status or heart achievement... A place to joke around, share memes, riddles or anything else you want to. Let's bring back some life in this place!!!!    
welcome back to the junk drawer of random beauty thoughts and musings. it has been nearly a year, so i think it is time for a rew RT thread !    when i'm doing my makeup in the morning, my dog sometimes throws a fit until i move his food bowl over to where i'm sitting. i'm certainly not the diva in our relationship. ____________________   THE QUESTIONS THREAD :   VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS THREAD ! :   SWATCH REQUEST THREAD :

a place to post about all things Sephora Favorites sets: past, present and future. Have a question, please ask.  Have a review, please post.  Have pics, please show us. These sets are one of my favorite things about shopping at Sephora. I get to try a bunch of products for a lower price and always end up finding some HG items.    Today, I got the Sephora Favorites: Beauty on the Fly. It was $42 plus ebates was at 8%.  For me, I've either been wanting to try all of these items, or have tried and really like them.    More pics and thoughts in the first post.       
As makeup lovers we tend to amass quite a large collection, but we all have our favored treasures. I was hoping we could share and discuss some of our most special items.    I don't necessarily mean favorites. I mean:   - Sentimental items - Limited Edition collector items - Next-Level-Dazzlers (items that take our makeup to the next level, and just make us feel glamorous and extraordinary)   Bring out your goods!   
Whatever you call yourself... a makeup addict, skin care junkie, a sample hoarder - I am sure you have something to confess. Is it an out of control makeup stash, bins overflowing with samples or shelves filled with skincare? We want to hear it! Share with the community and let us know how you stay organized (pics welcome)   If you have tips for organizing out of control stashes we want to hear from you!   ps: I love organizing so love to hear what others have to say!     pss: I did do a search and couldn't find anything recent close to this topic. Please correct me if I am wrong.
these sorts of lists are oddly satisfying., doncha think ? feel free to update / change whenever you want. it doesn't have to be 'favorites of all time' by any means, i thought it could focus more on what you find yourself fixated on currently   i know this is much like a favorites thread, buttttt......slightly different method and purpose ?   i'll post mine in the comments.   Base Products (foundations, concealers)   Eye Shadows / Palettes   Other Eye Products (mascaras / liners)   Cheek Products (blush, contour, bronzers or highlighters)   Lip Products   Face Masks   Skincare (cleansers, serums, oils, moisturizers)   Bodycare (lotion, shower products etc)   Hair   Beverages (because why not)   Lifestyle Misc. (candles, fragrance, books, shows, anything else !)
givenchy is one of the luxury beauty brands that has a firm place in my heart. my first luxury lipstick (rouge interdit in 'pretty rose') was givenchy, and i  treasured it.    i'm not exactly on top of 'new releases' as such (though of course i'll share here as i stumble upon news), but i wanted to create a space for my fellow Givenchy beauty lovers !   here are 2 dated adverts from 2011 but i lovvvve them and and find them apt for the brand:

I've been meaning to start this thread forever and thanks to @lmi82  for giving me the push! Please post any current or upcoming Disney collections here. There are so many which include beauty, fragrance and fashion. Whether it's Sephora, Danielle Nicole handbags, Jamberry nails or my favorite cheap stuff from the drugstore collections, add it here. There are so many Disney fans here on BT and our posts get scattered. Hope this enables our shopping habits all the more.  ✨Faith, Trust and Pixiedust!  
What brands are you obsessed with and what sparked your love for them? What is it about that specific brand that makes you come back to buy more or try their new products? Any brands you've been disappointed with? Brands that consistently have products that don't seem to live up to the hype... or that just doesn't work for you. Maybe there's a brand you don't want to buy products from due to poor reviews/image. Any brands you've been wanting to try or any that caught your eye due to packaging or a specific product.   Share your stories of brand love and dislike.   ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️   One brand that will always hold a special in my heart is MAC . It was the first higher end brand that I purchased from and what started my love and obsession to makeup! I still remember looking at all the beautiful and endless products they offered. What brought me to them was a lip balm I loved. It was a tinted lip balm and I wanted to match that very specific nude beige to a lipstick and couldn’t find it anywhere else. After seeing the range of color they offered I just fell in love. I must admit that I am a bit disappointed in the brand the last few years… it doesn’t feel like it used to and I can’t really put my finger on what makes me feels this way about them.   KVD is another brand that keeps getting my money. I'm loving pretty much everything she is coming out with! Her packaging and all the work she puts into it make it even more special.  I so wish I would have gotten the face chart reward when it was up. Definitely one of my top brands!     I also want to mention The Body Deli .  I keep repurchasing from them. I love their products and have been using their body line for a while now.  Here's more info about them from their site. Spoiler (Highlight to read) THE BODY DELI is the pioneer in fresh, organic, raw superfood enhanced personal care products. Two Cosmetic Chefs, Margaret Skarin Clark and David Anton Parker, created the brand in the resort towns of Palm Desert and Palm Springs, California in 2001. Two "foodies" with an extensive background in nutrition, raw food, wellness and beauty, envisioned a personal care brand so different, fresh and unique that they started making their own healthy skin care products. Their special method is a process similar to crafting fresh juices and smoothies in a high-end Organic Juice Bar. “Fresh Food for the Skin” was their concept, and since then they have evolved a global brand committed and dedicated to providing the absolute purest alternative for nourishing the face, body and hair. Celebrities, fashion designers, Fortune 500 leaders and health conscious people have fallen in love with The Body Deli’s unique, effective and wonderful creations.

Probably more but just have a huge memory blank right now
I mentioned recently in the Thoughts on Beauty thread that I was struggling with the visible signs of aging on my face. I am fairly diligent in my skincare and use retinoids but there is only so much topicals can do. About two and a half weeks ago I decided to take the next step and I got Dysport (it's like Botox) in my crow's feet and nasolabial folds (smile lines). I am absolutely happy with my results and would (and will) do it again as the effects from this round wear off.   I wanted to share my experience because I'm sure there are more of us out there who are thinking of having procedures done and are unsure, wondering about the cost or feel embarrassed talking about it. If anyone wants to ask me any questions, I'm happy to answer whatever I can.   Please, everyone, chime in with your experience as well!   I'm not totally excited about sharing some of these pictures. I took my "before" picture in the absolute worst light imaginable. In the waiting room, in 12:00 high noon sunlight. But it did pick up every wrinkle (um, yay).   Before:  I am looking up so my forehead is a bit more wrinkly than normal but you can see my crow's feet and my fairly deep NL folds. This is literally my least favorite photo of myself in existence.   Spoiler (Highlight to read) The night of: I'm a bit of a mess here. There's not much to see here except that I'm a little swollen. I also got a pretty bad bruise on my face and I thought you may want to see the progression. It wasn't too bad on that first day. My face WAS sore where I had the filler around my mouth. I got Juvederm Ultra Plus XC injected.   Spoiler (Highlight to read) A few days later: I know the lighting is bad here but the swelling is down but the bruise is bad. My face remained tender for a couple of days. I really hated going to work with this on my face, even trying to cover it up. (Also, my injector was really good. I bruise so easily and I don't blame her for this at all. It happens.)   Spoiler (Highlight to read) Two weeks: All healed. Took this photo yesterday in morning light with no filter. I forgot to mention that I also had the Dysport injected into the "11s" between my eyebrows. She only did 10 units so I still have movement but it seemed to have spread somewhat into the lines across my forehead, which is fine by me. I don't really mind those lines so much but, hey, if they wanna disappear I'm not complaining. This is the most close-up I have ever posted and I'm not loving it!   Spoiler (Highlight to read) I wanted to get injections into my chin to take away some of the dimpling I have but my nurse warned me that the chin area can sometimes have a tendency to spread incorrectly and affect the edge of your smile in a strange way so I decided not to do it. However, I did want to leave SOME lines and signs of aging on my face. I wanted still look like myself.   So all in all I had:   30 units of Dysport: 10 on each eye and 10 in my "11s" One syringe of Juvederm Ultra Plus XC   Here is the price list from the Medspa I went to:   Spoiler (Highlight to read) So there you go! I hope that's helpful!

This is a place to share who you follow for makeup, hair, nails or fashion ideas.  What are you favorite Instagram accounts?  Even though there are filters on IG, it can be a source of inspiration to get ideas from as well as getting the scoop direct from brands or stores. 
What are some of the weirdest and funniest beauty items you've seen?
Just like finding your name on a gift shop key-chain, I've always liked being able to do the same with beauty products. I thought it'd be fun to have a thread where you could post products (even non-beauty ones!) that share your name.   Here are the (few) products that I've found with my name: Zoya Lauren* (pink nude beige with shimmer) Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Lauren (punk rock pink) Jane Iredale PureMoist Lipstick in Lauren (creamy matte copper) Julep Lauren (hot tropical pink creme; discontinued) Napoleon Perdis Mattetastic Lipstick in Lauren* (pink tan; looks like it is now extremely hard to find in the US) *products I own    Also, shout out to @veronika23  for suggesting to start a new thread on the main feed.    I can't wait to see what products everyone will dig up!  
Piercing and Tattoos are a big part of body decoration but I can't find a thread dedicated to discuss P&Ts So I thought to start one. (If there is already a thread and I missed it somehow, please let me know and I'll take down mine).  This is a place to show off your Tattoos and Piercing, share your good and bad experiences. Seek help and suggestions if you are considering to get one or two or more. Images are found through Google search.
can ya believe it ? MAY FAVORITES are here. what are you favorite little babies this month ?   i'm gonna preface mine with saying i'm *not* including the reverie hair products i got recently--that i know some of you are curious about--not because i don't love them (i do !) but because i want to use them a bit more so i can really talk about them properly.      PETER THOMAS ROTH rose stem cell bio repair cream . what can i say, i adore this cream. i wanted to try it because i swear by the rose stem cell mask from this range, and it had surprisingly good reviews (surprising because anything that claims to be anti-aging tends to have mixed reviews, i've found, due to varying expectations). it's lightweight and soaks into the skin almost immediately--admittedly a feature i didn't love at first as i'd bought it with the intention of using it as a night cream (and i like to feel like a basted turkey as i go to bed). but i was very quickly swayed--and i now i wear it morning and night. not only does it hydrate, but i've noticed the pores on my nose (my problem area) appear smaller. my skin tone is very even and bouncy. and it's a lovely mix of nature and science (my preference). seriously--if anyone wants to ask me any questions about this, please do, because i want to keep talking about it ! NARS x CHARLOTTE GAINSBOURG velvet shadow duo, rue allent . i've worn this almost every single day since it arrived at my door (which is virtually unheard of, no matter how enthusiastic i am for a product). it's maybe replaced my HG NARS eyeshadow duo 'bellissima' as my very favorite. the sheer formula sweeps on evenly but can be built up--natural looking liner or dark smokey drama all over the lid. the light side is a perfect inner corner highlight without looking too frosty (something i don't like on me), or can be used as a light sweep over the dark side on the lid for a hint of added dimension. i'm already feeling anxiety over this not being a permanent item. NARS x CHARLOTTE GAINSBOURG multiple tint, jo . this is my favorite multiple EVER ! the texture is lovely, it's sheer but buildable. so natural looking but instantly brightening.  THE SUM - THE GOLD EDP . this is the latest launch from a little indie brand out of portland. it's like a beach scent for lydia deetz. beach sand cooled by the moon rather than warmed by the sun. jasmine, clove oil, sandalwood and dirt. i can't stop wearing it. JORDAN SAMUEL - plié cleanser. just a pleasure to use. to be clear, i don't use this to remove makeup, but as a second cleanse or morning cleanser, so i can't speak for that. but i love how it feels--it's very similar, though not exact, to the beloved NUDE omega jelly cleanser. cleanses skin but leaves it feeling bouncy rather than stripped. the price is great too. (this was a gift, and i'm ever so grateful !) RIDDLE OIL -- santal body lotion spray . another scent discovery this month, riddle oil santal is primarily a spicy cardamom and sandalwood scent, with amber, mango blossom and a hint of vanilla. i love the smell (it smells of the incense that was burned in the first yoga studio i ever frequented !), and something about a lotion in this spray form is just such a pleasure.  DIOR addict lip glow color reviver balm . i'm such a lipstick junkie, but it's just not been my jam this month. i needed to check my lips into rehab. and just about all i've worn this month is this ! i sleep in it, i go to work in it. my lips are so hydrated and plumped that i swear they look bigger !  i want a couple more (i just have the original pink shade, which gives the perfect natural brightening pink glow) REAL TECHNIQUES miracle complexion sponge . it took me a while to dare to try it, but i did, and i feel like it changed my life. i get it now. this is definitely my favorite sponge of ones i've tried (including beauty blender)--my makeup melts into my skin in a way i didn't realize it  hadn't been doing before. 100% love. what made you feel fab in may ?
let's get back to basics ! all answers subject to change. no answers will be held against you when you change your mind   what is your favorite __ of all time ? blush (or other cheek product) lipstick base product eye shadow (single, color, or palette) mascara skincare product perfume misc. (anything else you may want to mention !)
I'm super curious about everyone's shopping habits here, so starting a thread. A friend and I got into a discussion of how many lipstick we own--each of us own over 100. Are we crazy? I've always loved collecting makeup... Feel free to post photos of your makeup collections as well!   How many products do you estimate you have when it comes to makeup? Skincare? Haircare?   What brands/types of products do you hoard the most of and why?   How do you store all your products?   What do you estimate that you spend at Sephora yearly? Monthly?   What’s the most you’ve ever spent on one single Sephora shopping trip/haul, and what did you buy?   I'll go first!   - I have over 100 lipsticks, which is the bulk of what I hoard. I also collect eyeshadows (I own about 50, give or take). I don't have so much skincare or haircare, but have recently been buying all the Drunk Elephant products.   - Lipsticks by Dior, because their the best in my opinion. I also have a ton of Lime Crime lipsticks that I buy when they have their really good sales.   - I buy plastic makeup storage things from Amazon but I hate them. Anyone have any advice? I'd love to start using vintage trays or something but feel I have too many products.   - Recently I've been spending a lot more and have qualified as VIB Rouge for the past two years. My mom and I share the same card and I think we spent about $1,500 over the past year together. This month, we went on a haul and spent close to $500 total, which was our biggest splurge ever, stocking up on spring and summer products.
